Over the weekend, I was invited by a British friend to join a Blog Chain for writers of historical fiction. Each Tuesday, several bloggers answer the same set of questions about the main character of the book they are currently working on. Then those authors tap several friends to carry on the process the following week. My husband tells me this is a form of a Ponzi scheme, but it seems like a good way to introduce our characters to new readers who love historical fiction.
I've agreed to follow my friend Helen Hollick, who writes both Anglo-Saxon historical novels and great pirate adventures. I'm not sure which one she will be talking about tomorrow, but her characters are always fascinating, and more than a little sexy, especially the pirates.This blog will point you to her own contribution tomorrow, and then on the 22nd, I'll jump in with the story of my own Jonathan Grenville. Now I'm looking for about four more people to follow after me on April 29th.
Are you interested in following on in a Meet My Main Character blog chain? All you have to do is answer these questions:
